Our Team

Angela Reid-Nagy, Co-Founder and CEOAngela Reid
Angela started her career at the age of 18 as the Grants Coordinator for the Mission Creek Greenway Project in the City of Kelowna, where she began learning about the negative environmental and health impacts of “business as usual.” From this point, Angela knew she would start a business to help protect the environment. After twelve years experience in project management, business development, marketing and public relations, she realized that the best way to have the most impact would be to build and promote the business case for sustainability, and a new way of doing business. She has lived and traveled extensively throughout the US and Canada, working with all levels of business as well as Canadian and US governments on a variety of engineering, energy efficiency and environmental projects.

Always active in the community, Angela currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Okanagan Greens Society, the Alberta Biodiesel Association and is a founding member of the Okanagan Environmental Industry Alliance. She also sits on the Ecomonic Sustainbility Committee of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce.

In November 2008, Ms. Reid was elected to Kelowna City Council. She has also been trained by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate, Al Gore, to deliver the Climate Project Canada climate change presentations on a volunteer basis.
